We are totally in the time of the year for a Sugar Free Watermelon Popsicle Treat Recipe
Sugar Free Watermelon Popsicle Treat Recipe
Everyone where I live can totally agree.
It is really hot here. As a result, we need to stay cool and hydrated. Thus, we are enjoying some tasty frozen treats.
I must admit, whenever I see something frozen that is also good looking, I have to wonder about how much sugar is in it..
The good news about this recipe is sugar free. We will also add no additional sugar to it.
It would be impossible for us to make a totally sugar free treat if we were to make this from fresh fruit.
One serving of watermelon does have it’s own natural sugar which us about 17 grams. As a result, we will make this recipe using not a whole lot of it in it. Actually, adding a bit of watermelon is an option for added taste and texture.
The get-around cheat in this recipe is for us to use a Sugar Free Syrup.
You can find Sugar Free Watermelon Syrup on Amazon. It is the watermelon that gives us the pink color in this Popsicle.
We will also be using a sugar free pink lemonade mix.You can find sugar free pink lemonade on Amazon. The lemonade will add some taste and sweetness that is normally added to a watermelon popsicle recipe.
There is also green in this Popsicle.
The green represents the rind of a watermelon. For us to get this green color, we will use a small amount of kiwi.
The recipe for a Sugar Free Watermelon Popsicle Recipe
Here is a listing of ingredients that we will use.
Sugar Free Lemonade- 4 cups (1 quart)
Sugar Free Watermelon Syrup- 2 tablespoons
Optional- Cubed Watermelon-1 cup subbed in for one of the 4 cups of lemonade.
Also Optional- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips- these make cute seeds when randomly disbursed throughout.
And- Optional- 1/2 more cup of sugar free lemonade (can be yellow)+ 2 kiwi skinned.
How to make this.
In a blender, combine together the sugar free lemonade already prepared and the sugar free watermelon syrup. If adding a cup of cubed watermelon, add the cup of watermelon and omit one cup of the lemonade (ie add 3 cups of sugar free lemonade instead of 4).
When the ingredients are well blended, pour into your popsicle molds leaving about 1/4-1/2 inch free if you will be adding a layer of green later on. Add any sticks to the popsicles prior to freezing.
You can place this into the freezer and freeze. Also, you can add any chocolate chips that you will be using as ‘seeds’ to the popsicles after about 2 hours when things appear to be freezing. This will allow your ‘seeds’ to disperse somewhat. However, if you would like the seeds to all sit on the top of the popsicles, feel free to add those to the molds just before you add the liquid ingredients.
After the popsicles have sat inside of the freezer and appear to be frozen, you can add the green layer. To make the green layer all you need to do is simply combine the additional 1/2 cup of lemonade and the 2 kiwi in a blender. Please note that kiwi does have some sugar in it naturally if you are paying attention to sugar. You will need to blend the two together and then add the liquid to the popsicle in the freezer and continue to freeze.
The best popsicles come from molds.
You can find an abundance of molds on Amazon. Also, you can find a less expensive way to do this is if you disposable cups and a popsicle sticks- which you can also find reasonably priced on Amazon.
